Why do you need a Patient Advocate?

Medical billing advocates often have past experience working for medical providers, medical billing companies, or insurance agencies—so they have an insider’s perspective. A medical billing advocate provides the following types of services:

  • Look over your medical bills, insurance explanations of benefits (EOBs), and medical records for accuracy.

  • Find errors and negotiate with your medical provider or insurance company to lower your costs. Errors may include medical billing code discrepancies, over-charges, inappropriate insurance claims denials, and other mistakes that canunnecessarily raise your bill.

  • Work with your medical provider to negotiate further discounts.

  • Put together a medical bill payment plan for your medical provider (including hospitals) that fits your budget.
